Make Huyton Village is inviting people interested in a creative studio space to come along for a tour and to find out more about getting involved.

The 7,000 sq ft ‘maker’ space offers private studios and shared workspace for making, learning, exploring and sharing.

Open days are taking place on Saturday 13 and Saturday 27 January between 11am and 3pm, with tours lasting around 40 minutes.

Shop independent

Shoppers in Huyton Village Centre can find unique, hand crafted items and support local independent traders in the process.

The Make Huyton Village Shop is open from 11am to 3pm every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, showcasing original, handmade products designed by talented artists and makers from the creative community at Make Huyton Village on Derby Road.

The shop serves as a platform for makers who have studio space within Make Huyton Village, in the unit previously occupied by Boots, providing them with the opportunity to showcase their work and share their ideas with a wider audience.

The shelves of the Make Huyton Village Shop offer an assortment of one-of-a-kind products, and beyond the displayed items, many of the in-house artists and makers take commissions, offering the opportunity to create bespoke, personalised pieces.
